Instrument: trumpet 2yrs, alto sax 2yrs
Chair number/section rank section: Leader for trumpet, leader for sax 2nd yr
Number of years in band: 4
Class/Band size: I really couldn't tell ya ... ?? For trumpet it was a middle school band that was sort of like a music class but also included after school time, and alto sax was when i was in high school and it was the same sort of deal.
Band name and colors: We didn't have a name ... School colours ranged from blue and green and yellow to red and black (eeeew)
Do you compete? ... favorite competition, parade, review, exhibition, showcase, etc.?: We competed other schools in Kiwanis ... our school always finished first, even tho our instructors swore up and down we'd come in last ... hmph
Can you finish this sentence: "This one time at band camp..." I never got to go to band camp
Fondest or Weirdest band memory: We had a supply teacher (yes, it was actually a class ... but like i said, it was also extra curricular), so i got to instruct the warm up. No one was listening to me b/c they were doing their own warmups, so i took the conductor stick thingy and started banging the music stand. It broke (the stick)! All of a sudden i had everyones attention ... And the teacher wasn't too pleased about his broken stick thing when he got back, either

Instrument: Oboe, mostly, alto clarinet, which is one of the funny looking ones. That's really pretty dorky
Chair number/section rank We never had official titles, there were only three of us. I was the one who sulked the least, though.
Number of years in band: Four
Class/Band size From 30-50
Band name and colors No name, red, blue, and gold. We WERE really proud of having three colours. But why?
Do you compete? If yes, what is/was your favorite competition, parade, review, exhibition, showcase, etc.? We did Kiwanis and the like, but I can't remember now.
Can you finish this sentence: "This one time at band camp..." The year I went to band camp was the same year American Pie came out. That was NOT good timing.
Fondest or Weirdest band memory Being banned from having a Music Council Secret Santa exchange after someone was given edible underwear, one of the guys almost being blinded during a fund raising meeting when our teacher managed to nail him in the eye with a mini chocolate bar, and getting one bounced off my boobs not too long after (No, he wasn't evil or a lech, the guy just had lousy aim, but still liked tossing things to people). Gee, those are some pretty mediocre memories.
